It’s fruity Tuesday again and I’ve got another coconut key-lime recipe for you. There is no good reason for this. Do you need a good reason to have something delicious with these flavors? Apparently my husband does. He is not as much of a fan of the key-lime treats we’ve been whipping up the last few months. And he thought it was a bit ridiculous that I was making yet another key lime anything.
But I saw the Lindt White Coconut Chocolate at the store and the wheels just started turning. I was in the mood for something snacky and a bit salty, so I went straight for the popcorn.
Who doesn’t love a bit of sweet and salty?
This turned out to be a perfect snack. It wasn’t too heavy; there was just enough of the chocolate to cover but not drench the popcorn. And each of the flavors doesn’t overpower any of the others. It’s just a perfect combination of fabulous flavors.
- 6 cups popped popcorn (about the same as 1 regular size bag with un-popped kernels removed)
- zest of 1 lime or 2-3 key limes
- 1 bar Lindt Coconut White Chocolate
- Pop your popcorn and make sure there are no un-popped kernels.
- Place popcorn in a large bowl and sprinkle with lime zest. Mix lightly (you don't want all the zest to end up in the bottom of the bowl.
- Break up the bar of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on medium for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted.
- Pour over the popcorn and mix until all the popcorn is covered.
- Spread out on wax or parchment paper until cool.
If you use a bag of popcorn, I would use a natural, or light butter. Anything with lots of butter would be too much for the subtle and wonderful flavors in the popcorn.

I’m allergic to coconut, but DANG, this sounds good!

My husband doesn’t normally eat popcorn, which stinks because I LOVE it! Maybe this will convince him to eat popcorn with me.
I sure hope it does. My husband actually went in for some of this and then saw the lime and stopped. But hopefully yours will like it!
We will be trying this for sure!! Had an idea, why not mix in the zest into the chocolate then pour over the popcorn? That way it would stick to the popcorn and not end up in the bottom of the bowl. Just an idea, but we’re totally excited to give it a try!!!
Jennie, I saw your post and thought I’d add my comment to it. My first thought was that this sounded delicious and that I think I’m going to try it with the Lindt “Hello My Name is Lime Splash Bar.” It’s a white chocolate bar with a coconut lime butter cream center. The same I used in the coconut lime macaroons. AH-MAZING flavor. Add a little extra zest to the chocolate before pouring over the popcorn and holy guacamole I think it will be awesome.
Janelle, I actually thought of that flavor you used when I did this! I bet it’d be great! This one is much more subtle in it’s flavor, which is what I was wanting at the time. I’ll have to try it that way too!
Jennie, that would totally work too. I was just thinking that adding the zest last would be bad since it might clump, but mixing it in before you put it on the popcorn would be great! Thanks!
Hey, it sounds good to me! Lindt chocolate is my indulgent treat!
Thanks, Shelby! I couldn’t pass up the white coconut. They also have some other fun new flavors…that I might have tried several of in one sitting:/
This sounds so wonderful! I wouldn’t have thought to put lime with white chocolate in popcorn so I am excited you did!!!
Thanks Jen! It started last Christmas with some recipes I came up with and now it’s one of my favorite combinations!
I love key limes and I love coconut flavor. I bet this would be good.
Oh, it is Stephanie! It’s amazing what a good combination they are!

OMG, this looks so amazing! I had no idea there was coconut white chocolate, I need to get some, stat!
I know, Jenn! That’s how I felt when I saw it at the store. But beware of other Lindt deliciousness, because there’s so much!
